Blades & Blasters Title

Running the Gauntlet - A Sci-Fi/Fantasy Hybrid Adventure for 5E

The post-invasion world is a dangerous place. Aliens from the Xin Federation have conquered cities, kingdoms, possibly the entire world. 

In Running the Gauntlet, players must successfully navigate the unfamiliar perils of this new world to gain freedom from their oppressors. Running the Gauntlet is a dungeon-centric adventure for a level 5 party from the world of Blades & Blasters. Outwit your cruel masters, beat the dungeon, reclaim your freedom, and liberate the city! Play it as a one-shot, as an adventure connected mini-campaign, or incorporate it into an existing story!

This adventure draws on material from the core B&B Rulebook, but the book is NOT REQUIRED for play; all relevant B&B material, including alien monsters, weapons, and technology, can be found within this adventure's pages.

What's Included?

With your purchase you'll get a full color and a printer-friendly version of the adventure PDF. Within its pages you'll find:

  • 27 pages of adventure
  • 9 pages of appendices which include stat blocks for all aliens, monsters, and NPCs, and rules for alien weapons and technologies

In addition to the adventure document, you'll receive:

  • Map printouts
  • Gauntlet flyer printout
But the adventure doesn't end here...

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
